[applause] what do you say? >> allow me to respond. >> the truth tour begins tonight. [laughter] >> i should have set that up to point out that the beginning of that was hermann cain maintain the same point the romney campaign had, that the obama administration is getting rid of the work requirement. what i thought that showed was the importance of fact checkers in this campaign. i really think, and brandon and glenn and i were talking about how things are different this time compared to 2008. there is more fact checking than ever, and the fact checking

in the next few weeks, hopefully. we just have to be careful. but overall, in the major city there is no problem. but if you travel outside of tripoli, especially if you travel to the south, it is better not to travel by car. there are some security things people have to keep in mind but other -- overall people are anxious. one of the biggest things that made the vivian's angry is the incident that took place that it will drive companies and business away and they had been working very hard to be with the rest of the world. they felt that would be good. >> let's have another round of questions. i think you had your hand up. we have one here. >> the events over the weekend after the death of the embassador, where you have these demonstrations against the militias, one of the results was that some of the leaders said all the weapons had been stolen by demonstrators. these seem to get recycled and out of control again. with the ambassador gone and the cia team out, one of their things was looking for these patents and so on. how you assess the impact of that situation as reducin
